PAPA Week 2022
Scottsdale Artists’ School & Plein Air Painters of America
PAPA Week 2022
This workshop will focus on the foundational principles required to complete successful landscape paintings in the field. These instructors all agree that a solid understanding of drawing, value, design, and color is fundamental when it comes to analyzing the subject at hand and completing a solid painting. We will cover these principles in depth and discuss how they apply to organic form which is so commonly found in a natural environment. Participants should expect plenty of personal attention and daily demos.
This class is open to all skill levels.
On Sunday, all students will attend an all-day lecture series during which each instructor will lecture for approximately one hour. There will be four days of instruction (Monday-Thursday)
The instructors will be splitting into two teams: Eric and Mitch and Aimee and Dave. Students will be split into two groups with each group spending two days with each team.
Scottsdale Artists’ School cancellation policies apply.
“Meet and Greet” Dinner (Optional)
We would like you to join us for an evening of food, fun, art and conversation at the Valley Field Riding and Polo Club, a historic Phoenix landmark built in the 1920’s. Attendees will enjoy a buffet dinner and wine. As a special opportunity, dinner guests will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of four paintings donated by the PAPA instructors. Winners will be announced at the end of the evening.
Date: Sunday, February 13, 2021 | Cost: $60 (not included in cost of workshop) | Time: 6:00 pm
If you are interested in attending the dinner, please sign up at the time of registration.
Additional Vermilion Cliffs Excursion
Immediately following the workshop, all four instructors will be traveling to the Vermilion Cliffs in Northern Arizona for three full days of painting. Though it won’t be a continuation of the class or instruction, workshop participants are welcome to join the excursion to paint the area. We will drive up on Friday the 18th and begin painting on the 19th. Additional information will be provided upon enrollment.
